In this powerful and inspirational true story, the 27-year-old widowed mother shares the little-known details of her traumatic ordeal, and expands on how her faith and the bestselling book, "The Purpose-Driven Life," helped her survive and bring the alleged killer's murderous rampage to a peaceful end.
Like her captor, Ashley Smith too, has faced darkness and despair. Yet even during the most desolate times of her life, she yearned for something better. Seeking a new life, she moved to Atlanta, got a job, enrolled in a medical assistant program, and was beginning to find her way to becoming the kind of mom she wanted her little six-year-old daughter to have. Then she was taken hostage.
Here is Ashley Smith's gripping account of how this nightmare scenario developed into a remarkable connection between a man wanted for multiple murders and a single mother struggling to make a fresh beginning from her checkered and tragic past.
